I think this is quite a good signing.
I live in Worcestershire now so I've been to quite a few Cheltenham games this season and I've been impressed with Burgess. He deals well with high balls up the middle (laying them off to an actual team-mate rather than vaguely nodding them on) and attacks crosses, corners etc with some accuracy. He seemed fine in League 2. Cheltenham fans were expecting him to join permanently and will be gutted. I just hope it works out for him at a higher level.
Goal ratios are one thing, but assists are another. If he was teeing up other players quite frequently; enough to average 1 in 3 or better on goals and assists I'd be happy with that.
He's experienced and with the right club he could be very beneficial and should hopefully be someone who is not know for becoming a potential half a season player, so barring really bad luck, he should stay pretty fit all season.
Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.
